Jazz at The Oxford concludes with sellout

2017-JATO-specials-page-series-header-1It was a completely SOLD OUT season for BendBroadband’s seventh annual Jazz at The Oxford concert series. Between October and March this past winter, The Oxford Hotel and the Bend community welcomed an incredible and diverse lineup of world-class artists over five separate weekends.

Performers this season include drummer Bernard “Pretty” Purdie, Tuck & Patti, The Bad Plus and The Brubeck Brothers Quartet. Singer Sara Gazarek and the New West Guitar Group closed the concert series this month.

A big thank you to 10below’s new Executive Chef, Albert Hall, who created a fantastic menu for this year’s jazz series. A la carte appetizers were available as well.

Keep checking this website for information on the next series, which kicks off this October!
